for anyone who was interested in the clothes shown in Y's Beijing collection,
only one style of shirt from there went into production and now is available at pour homme stores (at least over here).
it's the blue camo-ish rayon shirt with red flower print
it should be familiar,
but there is also a yellow flowered khaki version.
this might have been posted somewhere, but could not find any post regarding this, so anyway

A new Yohj Yamamoto store has opened in Paris. At the corner of rue Cambon and rue du Mont Thabor, the new 600 square meter Yohji Yamamoto flagship,designed byarchitect Sophie Hicks, houses Yohji Yamamoto Women’s and Men’s collections. A selection of exclusive garments has been specifically created for the store, including a micro-collection of children’s clothes as a “clin d’oeil”,a nod,to his son.
runner, have you seen the NYC store? it reminds me of the NYC store, kiddy cornered just like that and has the big windows with white trim. of course the interior is completely different. thanks for posting, its neat to see the various stores. The YY concept is so strong.
...had a chance to pick up some y's on super sale; a felted wool single breasted blazer with peak lapel and silver snaps. one of those things you put on and it was a must buy, I dared not question the decision since I had no choice...dont know who was more insistent, the IF staff or softgrey who am I to argue with the pro's? but honestly, it was one of those things, you try on armful's of clothing, nothing looks quite right and then all of sudden there is ONE piece and that is it... it's so obvious it's Truth (and usually something Yohji).
speaking of AMAZING purchases that you put on and your eyes get bigger, you stand up a little straighter ...there is this navy tuxedo y's number that we should see pictures of soon, right softie....?
also, saw some of the pre spring shoes at the yy store. precious little eyelet ballet flats and a strappy gladiator that is so good in a way only yohji can do. i think they were all noir.
this is the felted jacket from yohjiyamamoto.co.jp (mine is being shipped)
but honestly, it was one of those things, you try on armful's of clothing, nothing looks quite right and then all of sudden there is ONE piece and that is it... it's so obvious it's Truth (and usually something Yohji).
that's why i try to STAY AWAY.
gorgeous, gorgeous, jacket. Please post pics when you get it.
